Christmas In July



It may only be July but Christmas will be here any minute.  As much as I hate to think about it now I guess it won't hurt to get my butt in gear and start making some cards!  The Paper Players have asked for Christmas cards this week so here you go!  I couldn't quite bring myself to go all red and green at this time of year so I went pink instead!  Maybe I could make a set in a few different colours....




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, pink) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Ornaments & sentiment) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Raspberry Ripple) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
Gems:  Craft Supplies 4 Less

Don't do this to me, Jen! You dirty rat....ha! Love the texture on this baby and the perfect sentiment design. Other colors would be great.

I think other colours would be great too :) I love the pink - pink on Christmas cards just seems to stay fresh & fun for me. Did you colour in some with markers or is this a 2-step ste? And the gentle shading? It's those teeny tiny bits that really make it pop :)

It's charming and I love it, Jen! And besides, the trend continues for using non-traditional colors on Christmas cards so well done!!

I love pink at Christmas, and blue! Even a little yellow. :-) This card is gorgeous, Jen!

Oh, I love this! I think it would look fabulous in any color. It's perfect to mass produce and nice and flat for mailing.
